Looks beautiful. What tools did you use to cut the pieces?

Thanks for the compliments. Yes it's made from an Ultimate, it's a fairly easy build. You simply truncate all of the faces, not corners and then I covered them with plastic sheet. Sand smooth and then painted. If anyone has any ideas for a name I'm open for suggestions.

I've also learned how to take good quality photos. :D


How about "Bowtie Skewb". The colored sides look like bowties... at least to me...

The pictures look good. Try using a piece of white cardboard or paper to sweep down behind the puzzle. This makes it stand out and look very professional. (and will add $$$ to the auction :wink: )

That is the correct link. Timselkirk was close and found another mod with pictures of this one in it, but this is the actual link. Thomas did originally make it along with Vadim, who made the same thing but with a different color scheme.

In the original thread I don't think that a name was ever decided upon.

Great job though! I just wanted to straighten a few things out so that it would be clear, but I really like how clean it is and how cleanly you used plastic sheet. I've been experimenting with plastic sheet but I'm not nearly that good at it!

A+
